Crush ‘Comeback’ Single, ‘Rush Hour’
BTS member J-Hope aka Jung Hoseok is grabbing headlines and melting the hearts of everyone these days. Not just ARMY, non-ARMYs and kpop music lovers, renowned faces from the Korean Music industry and more are bowled over by the surreal magic that Hoseok is making in everyone’s lives. He is just in fact being himself, the sunshine and spreading love and warmth everywhere. Well, Rush Hour ft BTS’ J-Hope and Crush dropped on 22 September. And it has been trending worldwide.
“So let me hear y’all scream hibihibi hop, just like that/Again clap clap clap and then hit that,” Crush sings in both Korean and English in the chorus. “Gather one and all like traffic jam/Get up, get up.”
“Rush Hour” is a taste of the new Crush after a two-year hiatus while serving in the Korean military, something Hobi may be facing soon. “Get ready to feel the Rush hour!!,” wrote Hoseok teasing the collab earlier this week.
BTS member Hoseok’s appearance in Crush’s song Rush Hour is making a lot of waves. ARMY couldn’t stop gushing over J-Hope for his amazing dancing skills, expressions, look and the energy that he brought to the song. Plus there’s another reason for ARMY’s happiness as there are references to Bangtan Boys’ songs such as Boy With Luv, Mic Drop, Butterfly and more. Rush Hour has been a pleasant surprise.
Rush Hour has topped the iTunes Top Song Charts in 41 different countries including Brazil, Chile, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Mexico. It also entered the Top 10 list in nations like the United States, where it stood at No. 2, Japan, where it stood at No. 3 and the United Kingdom where it stood at No. 4. Other than that, Rush Hour also topped Bug’s real-time chart in Korea as soon as it came out.
Hoseok was the first from the band to focus on his solo career. During the emotional Festa 2022, he had revealed that it would be healthier for the band to take a step back collectively. Hoseok had spoken about going solo , and how difficult it was to do so, without his other six members.
Calling it a lonely experience, he had said, ” I miss my members. But that’s also presented good challenges — physically, energetically, and mentally — after having worked the past 10 years in a group setting. It’s very challenging, but also very fun. So actually, I think it’s very positive to take on new challenges, which are actually going to help me as a person. So I’m actually enjoying the whole process. Every moment is very fun and very new and it makes me feel like I’ve gone back to the old days.”
Meanwhile, ARMY is eagerly awaiting the band’s concert in Busan, which will take place in October.
